Call for
Papers

With the development of the modern state,
there has been an ongoing tension between the will to control and at the same
time allow free speech to develop. In English-speaking countries, the theme of
“Censorship and Discourse” has been a recurrent concern from the 16th
century to the present day, as the numerous censored publications and writings against
censorship testify.

This conference will focus on three
different aspects of censorship and discourse:

1)      The nature of censorship and the way
in which it reflects the norms and values of the day;

2)      The discourse of censors as
institutions of censorship;

3)      The perception of censorship and the
reactions it entails.

The aim is to bring together specialists from
different disciplines: from the literary and linguistic disciplines to the
human and social sciences. The conference will be organised on a panel basis
and will be in English.

We welcome submissions from a broad
range of disciplines: Literature, Philosophy, Linguistics, History, Law,
